Last updated : 28 January 2011 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

AFC Bournemouth are checking out French central defender Mathieu Baudry, who is currently contracted to Troyes.

Baudry, described as a "combative' defender, in the Jason Pearce mould, will be travelling with the squad to watch them take on Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.

Cherries boss, Bradbury, is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "He is aggressive, good on the ball, wins his headers and is reasonably quick. He would be a good addition to the squad but we need to have a look at him in a game situation".
